Actually, that's not quite correct. There is at least one commercial
tool available for Samba that makes it possible to use mmc (the
Microsoft Management Console) and many of its snapins (especially Group
Policy, but some others work too) to write policy to netlogon and read
it in at user logon time. Obviously Samba has to support these :)
